£21.7 million mortgage bombshell in Brentwood

Households in Brentwood have faced an additional £319 per month added to their mortgage costs

5,660 households in Brentwood were forced to remortgage their homes in 2023 amidst Liz Truss’s mini-budget fallout.

Households in Brentwood who remortgaged last year face a £21.7million annual mortgage bombshell amidst spiralling interest rates following Liz Truss’s disastrous mini-budget new research by the House of Commons Library, commissioned by the Liberal Democrats has revealed.

17.5% of households in Brentwood remortgaged their home last year, resulting in an average of additional hit of £319 every month. The 5,660 households who were forced to remortgage saw a collective additional hit of £21.7million in Brentwood.
Brentwood’s Liberal Democrats have said that the research shows that the Conservative government’s boasts over inflation reaching 2.3% will “ring hollow” in the face of such startling increases in mortgage payments which have been “pushing families to the brink”.

Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Brentwood & Ongar, David Kendall said:

“Spiralling mortgage rates have been pushing families to the brink here in Brentwood, Ongar and the villages. 

“The aftershocks of Liz Truss’s disastrous mini budget have saddled thousands of households in our area with years of increasingly unaffordable monthly payments and the real threat of many losing their homes.

“This Conservative government has proven themselves utterly unfit to oversee our economy and it is families in our community who are paying the price for their staggering incompetence.

“The Prime Minister’s boasts about new inflation figures today will ring hollow to the thousands in Brentwood & Ongar who have borne the brunt of the cost of living crisis and are struggling to put food on the table. The Conservative party does not deserve to be in office for a moment longer.”
